"The driver is used for an older version of windows"


Recommended Posts

Hey all.

New user here :)

I am trying to update my Dell Inspiron 9300 to have the newest driver possible for my Geforce 6800 GO card..

I have tried MANY drivers and they seem to install. However when i try going to change screen resolution it says that "the driver is used for an older version of windows".

Using Windows XP 32 bit


I have tried looking and some of the drivers that people say works, doesn't.

Maybe there is something i am doing wrong in downloading the right .inf file?

Anyone has the time to help me clearify :)

Thanks in advance

hmm.. normally if the inf is not right it wont install.. i've never experienced that issue. (change resolutions driver states... )

as for newest driver for your system.. the newest is probably not the best.

you'll have to do a search to see what others with your system find work well.

ive heard good feedback from 174.31 and 174.74 ok feedback from 175.14 175.70

-download these drivers maybe,

-download the inf,

-overwrite the existing inf file with the new one..

-run set up. restart

-try to change resolution.
